Masai Mara and Zanzibar

4 nights of amazing game viewing combined with 6 nights of beach relaxation.

This itinerary combines the incredible game viewing of the Mara North Conservancy in Kenya’s Masai Mara, with a relaxing beach holiday on the exotic island of Zanzibar, just off the Tanzania coast. You will see a wonderful array of wildlife on safari, as well as enjoying Africa’s classic open plains scenery, some excellent guiding, warm hospitality and exclusive game viewing. All of this will be followed by the beautiful island of Zanzibar where you can relax overlooking the Indian Ocean and enjoy various activities including snorkelling, diving, dhow trips and sightseeing.

ITINERARY DETAILS

Day 1-4: Kicheche Mara Camp – 4 nights
From Nairobi, take a scheduled light aircraft flight south-west to the open plains of the Masai Mara. You’ll land within the exclusive Mara North Conservancy, where you are met by your guide from Kicheche Mara Camp and transferred, game viewing en route, to arrive in camp in time for lunch. Your days at Kicheche Mara Camp are spent exploring the Mara North Conservancy, enjoying its superb game viewing opportunities, and being a private conservancy, a much more exclusive experience than the Masai Mara National Reserve. In addition to game drives, you can also enjoy guided bush walks and visit a traditional village.

Day 5-10: Breezes Beach Club – 6 nights
After your final morning game drive, you will connect with a scheduled light aircraft flight back to Nairobi, before connecting with an early afternoon scheduled light aircraft flight south-east to Zanzibar, Tanzania. On arrival you will need to clear customs before being transferred east across the island to arrive at Breezes Beach Club in time for a cold drink overlooking the Indian Ocean. Your time on Zanzibar can be as lazy or active as you prefer. Breezes is located on a beautiful sandy beach and has plenty of good areas to relax, and a large pool with views out over the ocean. Activities on offer include dhow trips, reef walks, snorkelling, scuba diving, kite-surfing and sightseeing tours.

Day 11: End of Arrangements
Check out of the hotel will be late morning after which you will be transferred back to Zanzibar Airport in order to connect with your onward flight home.
